Google has decided to cancel this years' April Fools prank out of respect for those fighting new coronavirus pandemic globally.

Google is very famous for its April Fool’s jokes. They create many funny jokes on their apps and products. However this year out of respect for the medical workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic all over the world, Google has told all its teams to cancel all April Fool jokes this year. Google said that, “Our goal this year is to help people. Joking in such a time would be insensitive. So let's save the jokes for next April. That time we can all enjoy it and it will be very fun. 

The reason Google and many others are doing this is because many people are stressed right now due to the lockdown implemented in various countries. April Fool jokes may cause them more mental stress and can cause many problems. 

However this doesn’t mean everyone must be serious 24x7 and avoid joking and laughing.If you feel your friends and family members are stressed and worried, try to talk to them. April Fool is actually about spreading happiness and laughter. Try to make them smile and laugh. Making them smile and laugh will make them feel better. If they don’t feel like talking, give them their space.In such times we all need to be considerate about each other's feelings.
